Peel Back The Layers

Peel back the layers
Feel the bad ooze out
Permeating the glad
Spreading like a plague
Full of anguish
Making good things bad.

Sadness too comes along
Melancholy through
And through
Raising no gladness
To the sky
Only morose sadness
Lonely, standing by.

You are right
You are good
To let the layers lie
Just as they should
In their own
Forsaken lullaby.

Nothing gained
Nothing lost
To let badness scuttle off
Please leave those layers
Let them stay
Don’t peel them

Travel Thru Life

Travel thru Life ~ photo by Patrice

Travel thru life
In a rushing way
Move on
Never stop to employ
Harshness or the madness
Of decay.

Don’t deny
The wonder all around.

Travel at a warp speed
Teeth clenched
Eyes about to sneeze
Spreading a happy time
Enough to last a lifetime
For you
For me.
